I had the opportunity this past week to create a cover image for the fourth issue of Unheard Magazine, an independently produced and FREE downloadable creative magazine. You can find out more about the issue and the previous three at the magazines website:

It's a tree.
No, it's a heart.
Wait. It's a critter.
What IS it?
Tell us your inspiration so that we (I) might find some enlightenment, O Improbable Art Sacker.

Thanks, Joe. I can't really tell you what it is. For one reason I like to allow the viewer their own interpretations. Another reason I can't is because of the process by which most of my personal illustrative work is achieved. I start out with laying done gesture lines on the paper — curves, arcs, tics, etc. — that eventually start to form an image that I follow from there. More of an unconscious way of approaching the drawing process. At some point I do consciously take over and realize there are things there I am seeing that appeal to me or I want to continue working on. I have also begun taking my work and turning it to see if using the drawing in a different way could be more appealing. This piece is a prime example of all those processes.
